My sweet husband…he had to go out of town this week and wasn’t home for Valentines Day. But before he left for the airport he left this on the kitchen counter.
Do you realize what this means??? I was left alone, UNATTENDED, with an entire box of Russell Stover dark chocolates for three days!
As I’ve shared before, I cannot be trusted with chocolate – mine or anyone else’s for that matter.
Anyway, one of the things that I happen to love about Russell Stover is that they include this handy dandy little guide to the placement of the assorted chocolates. That way I don’t have to stick my fingernail in the bottom to find out which ones are the good ones and which ones are the crappy ones.
So in case you were wondering, I thought I’d take this opportunity to share with you how this chocoholic works her way through a box of chocolates such as this.
It’s all for you friends, just one of the many ways my blog continues to be of public service.
(BTW – I am an Okie so I say carmel. And realator. Just don’t tell my friend Carrie who is a realtor.) LOL
Anyway, dark chocolate and caramel are a match made in heaven. I love the combination of the slightly bittersweet chocolate and the creamy, rich, and sweet caramel.
If you could just give us a moment…
And after the caramels, I go straight for the nut clusters. And then the chocolate truffles. If I’m feeling especially desperate I might even have a molasses chews or a Roman nougat.
But this nasty little guy…
…Gag. Only in extreme circumstances – I’m talking DefCon5 – can I be tempted to eat the coconut crème. Seriously, does anyone like these? And am I the only one who has ever picked the chocolate off?
Wait, don’t answer that – I don’t think I want to know.
Anyway, there you have it – Dark Chocolate – I love it almost as much the man who gave it to me.
